With this week so full of birthdays, I needed a short break from birthday cards so I decided to create a graduation card. I know, it's only January, but it never hurts to think ahead. Daring Adventure jumped out at me and said, "use me!" It's found on page 145 in the Idea Book & Catalog. It quotes one of those people I most admire, Helen Keller. She overcame great obstacles and what better way to let your graduate know that a whole new world awaits them.
Stamp Sets: Daring Adventure, Teeny Tiny Wishes; Ink: Soft Suede; Card Stock: Naturals White, Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper, Calypso Coral, Soft Suede; Accessories: Boho Blossoms Punch, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds, Jewels Basic Pearls, White Baker's Twine, Stampin' Dimensionals
The quote from Helen Keller, "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing," is stamped on the inside of the card. Because I hand stitched the zigzag on the front of the card, the ugly part of the stitching was visible when the card was opened. To cover it up, I attached a matching piece of the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Now it's on to more Valentine cards. I have some really cute 3 x 3 cards I'm making and I'll share those at a later time.
Until we meet again...
